These increase will apply to all operations on these domains, so if you've always wanted one of these domains, now is the time to get it. If you have one already and it's not renewed up to the maximum registration period (10 years on all of these), now is the time to top it off. And if you have your domain registered elsewhere and want to consolidate your portfolio at Gandi, now's the time to transfer it. As you can see from the list above, the savings could be significant.
It's always with great remorse that we make this type of announcement but effective 23 January 2017, in order to comply with our contractual obligations, we have increased registration and renewal prices on 76 TLDs, on all price grids.
The reason for the price increase largely has to do with the fact that we pay most new gTLDs in US Dollars and exchange rates have recently fluctuated such that we were compelled to increase rates on affected TLDs.
Generally, we don't adjust our prices based on minor exchange rate fluctuations, however the variations this time were too significant to be able to avoid adjusting our rates. So it's out of necessity that we are notifying you of the following new rates on the following TLDs:
This summer is all about you, Gandians: with .photo and .sexy on sale for 50% off it's time to get those domain names to celebrate your photogenic and sexy selves. Normally a .photo (which can be used for more than just selfies, by the way), is $32.49 for a one-year registration at A rates but this summer you can get one for just $16.25.
And .sexy, which normally runs $21.70 for a one-year registration at A rates is available for the sexy price of $10.85. The summer fun starts today, June 15 until September 15.
